Masks worn by doctors during the Plague

The protective suit of the plague doctor consisted of a heavy fabric overcoat that was waxed, a mask with glass eye openings and a cone nose shaped like a beak to hold scented substances and straw.

I don't know if this is true or not. I was too lazy to look it up this morning. Its a neat fact if it is true. Neat in the crazy, scary sense, not neato in the retro cool sense.
